We debated doing a paid tour , but Louis was appealing and easy to listen to so we decided to join his group. By the way he was also the person who approached us. He has a good grasp of the history and kept the info light and not boring. The buildings are beautiful and in two hours we covered... More

We went on this tour because I had read about it before visiting Oxford. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Martin, our tour guide, was hilarious and very knowledgeable about Oxford and all the quirks the colleges have. The 2 hours passed really quickly and I felt I learnt a lot. It's a great fun way to get your bearings... More

I looked up this tour online whilst in Oxford, knowing I did not want to spend lots of money on a tour I may not enjoy. Also, I'm a student. I like free things. Don't judge. This was the first time I returned to Oxford after my Uni interview in 2010 and I was keen to learn more about its... More

This is a very full, great 2-hour walking tour of Oxford. I had done research before I left home and thought this tour sounded like a great way to get to see Oxford on my one day there. I almost got waylaid though by the other "paid" tours who lure you in by stating that they are the only way... More

We arrived just in time for our tour guide to start the tour at 11am can't remember her name but the tour itself was very interesting and informative. You really get a chance to have a feel for the place and it helped us get our bearings on our day trip of Oxford. It was lovely to hear all the... More

The 2 hour walking tour around Oxford was so much fun! We learned the history of the university and town from our guide Tom. He was so engaging and funny! I would highly recommend this tour with Tom to those who are visiting Oxford!

This was our first time to Oxford and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour free walking tour. Tom was an incredible tour guide who was knowledgeable, clever and funny. Both of my children, 13 and 10, really enjoyed the tour - so much in fact, that my 10 year old wants to attend the university. He was a great storyteller... More

Done the 2 hour free tour. It is free but they do say about tips but they don't pressure you to give them anything. I would definitely recommend Tom as a tour guide. Really funny! Tells you about all the sights in such detail.
